BYU Religious Studies Center; Deseret Book
In this chapter, Barbara Morgan presents the history of the LDS Church schools in Mexico. As the colonies continued to grow in the Mexico area, there was a decision that needed to be made to expand not only the educational system, but the buildings as well. After the decision to build a bigger building was made, President Ivins conducted a meeting to raise money for the buildings' construction.
"When the meeting closed after two hours, every person in the room had pledged donations for cash or labor or both, every cent and hour of which came from willing hearts, hearts that counted personal sacrifice no sacrifice at all when educational advantages for their children were concerned."
